Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine the prevailing attitude among union workers concerning production quality. The rationalization behind this study was that by studying union employees' attitudes and production quality of those employees, a dependent relationship might become evident. A large manufacturing firm in the Midwest was the site of an attitude survey. Union employees were asked to respond to general and biographical questions, attitudinal questions regarding production quality, and to give any appropriate comments. The null hypothesis stated that union workers are indifferent to the quality of the products they produce. This hypothesis was rejected in favor of an alternative which stated that union employees have a positive attitude about production quality. This study attempted to develop a relationship between attitudes and production quality. Hopefully, this thesis will benefit others with similar interests.
